The hotel is great. The grounds are beautiful and the hotel is conveniently located at the beginning of baynan drive in Hilo. The staff is friendly and have the true Aloha spirit. We always stay here when we visit Hilo. Mahalo.

I'm not sure about shuttle services as we rented a car. But it's close to many sites and restaurants. I recommend hiring a vehicle giving you much more flexibility In All you do. Have a great time!!!
